Named for folklore legend Johnny Appleseed and the highway-cruising Oldsmobile Rocket 88, Johnny Rockets fashions edible slices of Americana from third-pound beef patties. The Montgomery Road location, like its siblings in casinos, cruise ships, and amusement parks, stocks its menu with malt-shop classics—including the founding original hamburger—and lines its interior with blenders of premium ice cream. Filled with seasonings and grilled to order, burgers such as the bacon-crowned Smoke House Single summon savory flavors to appease growling stomachs.
Philly-cheesesteak sandwiches pile chicken or sirloin and a choice of cheese atop hearth-baked amoroso rolls, and all-beef hot dogs dispense more sustenance than a turkey stuffed with cotton candy. Toast a platonic friend or a steamy plate of french fries with an original milk shake available in vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry.
When Ronn Teitelbaum opened the first Johnny Rockets location in 1986, his goal was to create a restaurant where people could escape the postmodern blues of everyday life and experience a taste of time-honored Americana. The name itself is a nod to this ideal—it combines the star of a classic American fable, Johnny Appleseed, and a classic car, Oldsmobile’s beefy Rocket 88. The chain now makes itself at home in America's cultural landmarks, including Yankee Stadium and the Flamingo Hotel.
During dinners at the famous burger joints, you’ll see signs of simpler times, starting with the cooks and servers—dressed head to toe in white, including white paper hats, they look like they’ve fallen out of a wormhole from the 1950s ready to sling shakes and cook up some eats. Behind a stainless-steel bar lined with red leather stools they tend to their traditional diner fare, including burgers and melts with sides such as chili-cheese fries and onion rings. Riding sidecar to each meal is a collection of hand-dipped and hand-spun floats, shakes, and malts topped with whipped cream.
